For starters we recently won ‘Best Pregnancy Class in Norfolk’ so if you want to attend the best in Norfolk, book with About Birth & Babies!
As fully qualified, licensed and insured antenatal teachers, we are able to offer comprehensive antenatal courses from early pregnancy right through to early postnatal. We’re qualified, competent and confident to teach about all aspects of labour and birth as well as caring for and feeding a newborn baby and are one of the few local providers who are qualified and experienced to be able to offer this.
You might be offered a free eight hour NHS Pathway to Parenting course which is delivered by a midwife, health visitor and Children’s Centre staff. This course will cover the basics. Some couples like to attend this course as well as one of our more comprehensive courses or book a 1-2-1.
For more information on our courses please follow this link.
Attending a full course with us means that you get the benefit of having whole group discussions as well as small group discussions. People bring different perspectives to the table so you get the benefit of hearing others’ views, some of which you might not have considered. Couples are also invited to ask questions throughout.
Being part of a full course also means you get the benefit of meeting others who are expecting a baby at a similar time and have a ready-made support network.
Being independent, we are able to take a more practical and modern approach to teaching, particularly around the practicalities of returning to work and sharing childcare. We also have the freedom to work closely with other local specialists for the benefit of our clients.
We have the autonomy to offer a more personalised service than national organisations and flexibility in terms of course formats, prices, venues and partnership working. Our courses are not inferior because we charge less than other organisations. We know couples want to attend private antenatal classes because they benefit hugely from doing so but starting a family is an expensive time so we price our courses fairly in the hope more couples are able to attend. We also offer payment by instalments.
We consider our team to be particularly friendly and caring who will go that extra mile to support you.
